In honor of Non-runner Nancy, USJogger organized a Freakishly Flexible 5K to be run on or around Valentines Day. Since Nancy has done so much for us running bloggers, including hosting the very first virtual run I ran in, I decided to participate and let her know how much she’s appreciated. I was planning to take it easy, but apparently I fueled myself well last night, so I ran it in 26:39 (8:39, 8:40, 8:31, 0:49) which is not my fastest 5K ever, but is pretty darn close. I then finished up with .9 miles at a 10 minute pace to get in my 4 that I needed to do.
All in all it’s been a great weekend so far. After a nice dinner out last night, which included a Scotch Ale and a cask-conditioned Brown at Rock Bottom Brewery, we took the boys to the Udvar Hazy Air and Space Museum. Like most museums in the DC area, the museum itself was free. Unlike many in the area, you can’t get there on public transportation, so we had to drive and they charge for parking. Oh well, it’s still an awesome museum. The boys loved looking at all the planes, spacecraft and hot air balloon related exhibits. Shoo was particularly excited to see the Space Shuttle as he’s very into “face” these days.
Jones, on the otherhand, was most impressed with the mailbox painted to look like R2 D2. Tonight will be a quiet night in, but tomorrow we have a babysitter! Woot! Date night for mommy and daddy, which doesn’t happen nearly enough around here.
